When Custer stood upon that lonely Montana hill in 1876 facing insurmountable odds and knowing that his fate was sealed as they were coming from all directions, he must have felt the same way as Jimmy Howard last night. Minus, of course, the arrows and actual bullets and Indians, but a lot more pucks.
7-3 against Carolina, when a team loses by 4 it is almost impossible to say that the game was not even that close but it is the truth, 7-3 was actually 8-3 as the Wings won a challeng
Yeah, WOW they dont look like the same team that was responsible and checking and winning 3 of their first 4. Losing is one thing, losing by 3 or 4 goals every night is just cringeworthy.
Seider looks great in Grand Rapids, he seems to rapidly be gaining confidence (2 assists tonight, one on a 80 foot pass to Chris Terry setting him up for a breakaway. With Rasmussen out hurt I have been watching more of Seider to get a feel of him and he truly looks to be mor

Speaking of the Griffins, Rasmussen who was out
My brother just flew down from Detroit last evening. Complaining about AA's lack of production.
My response: If AA even scored 1 goal every single game, how many of the 12 games lost out of 13 would we have won?
His response: silent nodding in resigned agreement.
More offense may sound good, and it WILL be important, but it's not going to make much difference when you're giving up 4 goals every second period of every game!
Fabbri, I really liked him a few years ago, not afraid to crash the net played hard, gave it all every night. Then he blew out his knee not once but twice, lost his speed and his confidence, doenst play with the same style anymore. A change of scenery for a former first rounder kind of like Perlini. De Larose never did much, will be quickly forgotten. I like the idea of collecting kids in their early twenties who were former first rounders for essentially nothing. Low risk, decent reward guys if
